Is this the best glam rock album compilation there could ever be? Not quite. This album does a great job of showcasing the biggest hits from the biggest UK glam rock bands of the early 1970s, such as Slade, Sweet, Mud, Mott the Hoople and Roxy Music. What are especially welcome are one-hit wonders such as Geordie and Cozy Powell.

Damage is the eighth studio album by American punk blues band Blues Explosion, released in 2004. This is the first album that the band has released under the abbreviated name "Blues Explosion" rather than their previous name, "The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion". Spencer said about the band name change: "It's always been a band, never a solo project, The name change honors a band that allows the three of us to make music for a while
Many of the 17 archive cuts on The Bristol Heavy Rock Explosion are generic pub-rock and more interesting as historical rather than musical artefacts, but some rare gems worthy of rediscovery are included too. Bands such as the prog-leaning Magic Muscle, fronted by singer/guitarist Rod Goodway, whose fluid early-70s line-up included members of Hawkwind, the Only Ones and future David Bowie violinist Simon House. Their Free As A Bird, a Neil Young-ish power-chord chugger clothed in spangled rock-opera fanfares, is one of the highlights on this album
Users' Highest Rated Glam Rock Albums of 1974. The Best Albums of 1974. Homecoming: the live album.
Almost all the great glam records were hits, but this is one of the best that wasn't: an abrasive slice of Sweetarama from a Scottish band, who toughened up the teenage-rampage meme while wearing Clockwork Orange-inspired costumes. The singer had a padlock on his crotch with the legend: "No Entry. 20 Sweet, The Sixteens July 1974. A four-minute mini-opera on the theme of failed youth revolution, and a summer top-10 hit, this shows the renamed group – having lost the definite article – rising to the song's complex structure with a totally convincing performance.
In many ways, the glam rock explosion of the early '70s was a rage against the fading of the light. By that we’re referencing the fading of the ‘60s’ cultural Technicolor dream: the Beatles’ break-up, the Stones’ Altamont debacle, the Manson killings, the deaths of Hendrix, Joplin and Morrison, and the general abandonment of the Age of Aquarius’ peacefully revolutionary spirit in exchange for the ill tidings and dark omens of the ‘70s – not helped, perhaps, by heavy. Together, these artists ushered in the classic glam rock era; and while the movement’s original sunburst winked out well before decade’s end, it continued to influence new generations of visually arresting artists well into the ‘80s, ‘90s and the present day, with much help from MTV. Be that as it may, we’ve decided to narrow our focus on that original batch of innovators for this Top 10 ‘70s Glam Rock Songs, and, no, Gary Glitter isn’t invited – sorry!
